The best Thread Lift in Bangalore performed by Dr. Sandhya Balasubramanyan is a multi-step procedure. It is also called the lunchtime lift as the procedure is done under Local anaesthesia or mild sedation. You can go home a few hours after the procedure.

A barbed or a cogged thread with a needle is introduced from the hairline region and passed under the skin to the centre of the face. Multiple threads are passed in different vectors to catch the excess skin. These threads are then pulled up and anchored in the scalp to give an immediate lifting effect to the jowls, neck, and eyebrows or droopy cheeks. The threads dissolve over a few months and during this time the lifted tissue rests firmly in its new position.

These threads have the added benefit of stimulating the production of collagen in our skin. As we age the collagen content of our skin reduces causing loss of volume and suppleness to the skin causing wrinkles and fine lines. Threads by stimulating collagen production rejuvenate the skin of the face. This effect of threads lasts for 2-3 years. With thread lift in Bangalore offered by Dr. Sandhya Balasubramanyan, one can achieve long-lasting results and a rejuvenated appearance. 


Post-procedure avoids hot showers, sleeping on the face and strenuous exercises for 10 days. You can get back to work in a few days.  Apply antiseptic cream at the entry points of threads in the hairline. A cold compress can help in reducing the mild bruises and swelling that may occur with thread lift. You may also be prescribed some mild painkillers for the initial 2-3 days. Follow diligent sun protection for a few weeks with sunblock and sunglasses.

The results of the Thread lift procedure are immediate and improve over the next few weeks. The collagen production keeps the results lasting for 2-3 years. It also needs a healthy lifestyle which includes a good diet, exercise, regular skincare regime at home and curtailing smoking and alcohol.

Note that most of these minor inconveniences are uncommon, and even if they happen, they usually resolve on their own.

Which areas can be lifted with threads?

The mid face  folds, lower face jowls, marionette lines around the corners of mouth, lax skin in chin, neck folds, eyebrows to lift the outer edge and even nose for a droopy tip can be tackled with threads.

Which other procedures can be combined with a thread lift ?

Combining some other procedures with a thread lift could give more effective and long-lasting results. For instance, by injecting dermal fillers to smoothen the wrinkles on your face, the result of a thread lift can be enhanced.
